We jizz in the drink and that's what makes it light.

I'm with you. I'm not sure if my standards have lowered or if they've just been that funny, but I've been pleasantly surprised at how good the season has been so far. It feels like they aren't trying so hard and just letting the characters be themselves.

And Charlie's song was hilarious. Both versions.

This season is closer to older Sunny, the characters seem to be jibing again.

Loved Dee at Sudz. "You wish!" "Just bring us the drinks, dickbag!" For some reason typical d-bag remarks are hilarious the way she says them.

The lighting Dennis setup for Dee was amazing.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award"

I laughed out loud a few times and didn't stop for around 30 seconds.

I liked their reactions to the cutesy crap at the other bar.

Loved Mac strangling Dee.

What they were introduced to when entering the "up-scale" part of the bar:

"Put the bottle in!! AAAHHH!! Get the bottle out!! Get the bottle out!!"

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award"

What an awesome "Fuck You" to all the shitty sitcoms that win awards. Hilarious episode. It was funny that they snuck in a little jab at American Horror Story (although it was hardly a jab I guess).

I think the jab was at Louie. (At least if we're referring to the new bar that wins awards)

Oh and this:



I love that Danny DeVito is filming Charlie Day with his cellphone

I don't remember quite how it went, but Frank was talking about the cabaret being dark or whatever, sounded like he was describing AHS? I wouldn't really consider Louie to be a dark show. Also, Louie has only won one Emmy.

Apparently my access to FXX on DirecTV was just a preview, and I need to pay another $6 per month for the next level package that includes the channel. Grr...

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award"

Loved the jabs at the laugh track as well. First the peanut gallery of people sitting at the bar at Sudz and then the bell. "I don't need to be told when to drink!"

I thought the 'dark' bar they were referring to wasn't about AHS but was more about Mad Men. The joke mentioned martinis and period costumes. Could also be Boardwalk Empire I guess.

The one about the "bar that opened last year down the street", I think was about Louie.

Re: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award"

Yeah, I think the exact line was "it just opened and has already won an award"

I didn't connect the Cabaret my mistake.

Awesome episode and great season so far. This episode was up there with some of their best. I almost never rewind during an episode of TV but I had to go back a couple times on some of the funniest parts. Don't remember doing that since "full on rapist" or maybe when Foghorn Charlie was barfing in the back of a limo.

I haven't consistently laughed this much at an episode of Sunny in a long time. Brilliant.

3 for 3 this season with funny episodes. The last few years have been inconsistent and sometimes forced, but I have to say this season is pretty good.
